There are many myths around hospice care; once in a hospice you never come out, they’re dark and dingy and full of gloom and doom. Preconceived views are hard to change but we’re determined to prove the myths are far from the truth. As part of national Hospice Care Week (9th to 15th October), we’re launching a campaign called #ChallengingPerceptions aimed at busting the myths about adult hospice care.
At the centre of our project is Caroline from Par. Caroline had breast cancer five years ago, she’s a survivor and she isn’t dying, but she does need to visit Mount Edgcumbe Hospice once a week.
